Source: Wolves get Louisiana native Young as part of Love trade
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota - The Minnesota Timberwolves have secured the final piece they were looking for in a blockbuster Kevin Love trade.
A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Timberwolves will receive Philadelphia 76ers power forward and New Orleans native Thaddeus Young as part of the deal that will send Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.
The Wolves agreed weeks ago to send Love to team up with LeBron James in Cleveland. The Wolves will also get Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett in the deal, which cannot be completed until Saturday, 30 days after Wiggins signed his rookie contract.
The Sixers will get Alexey Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute from Minnesota and a 2015 first-round draft choice from Cleveland.
